If you need help with ANYTHING, people are there for you. That, the community, and emphasis on diversity/world views are the best things about Hendrix. It has really good food, its quirks, and a beautiful campus. Classes are great because there's a range from intro to really hard. It's a liberal arts school, so you have to take a bunch of different classes besides your major but that's great because it keeps things interesting and lets you find interesting things that you'd never think of taking otherwise. Some parties are majorly fun. Clubs throw a lot of events/parties that everyone is invited to. Here, you feel like you're being taken care of but at the same time growing up and you have lots of independence. Only complaints are the dorms are gross and hard to get out of after Freshman year, the town really sucks.
Review Your College
I love this place! I came in from out of state and not knowing anyone. With the orientation (you take a 3 day trip) I made some great friends i feel confident I'll know for life. Everyone is very accepting and welcoming. I can't imagine myself anywhere else. Also I know for some, Arkansas might be a turn off (I'm not from here and was hesitant myself to come) but it really shouldn't be! It's so much more beautiful than I expected and fall was amazing.
The school provides an incredibly supportive learning environment. Although small, which may leave you with limited options for professors or a huge choice in courses, most professors provide quality teaching and treat students with respect and understanding. The school administration provides a large support network beyond the assistance provided by professors through their classes.
